    <p>Members of the lpadmin group have admin access to the web interface,
      where they can
      edit the config file and set some “dangerous” directives (like the
      logfilenames), which enable them to read or write files as the user
      running
      the CUPS webserver.
    </p>
  </description>
  <impact type="normal">
    <p>A local attacker could possibly exploit this vulnerability to read or
